Hunter Beats Charging Wild Boar With Her Shotgun After Missing The Shot

wild boar hunt

By any means necessary…

A female hunter in Sardinia, an island off the coast of Italy for those of you who haven’t looked at a map in a while, found out the hard way why you don’t want to miss your target.

Of course, all of us hunters have missed a time or two, and generally that means one thing… the animal runs away.

However, when you’re being charged, missing can mean the difference between an eventful hunting trip, and a trip to the hospital.

Luckily for this woman, instincts took over and she resorted to a more primal form of self-defense… a good ol’ fashioned beating.

In the video, you can see the woman waiting in the brush with her shotgun in hand. You can hear a shot in the distance, as well as dogs barking, so it sounds like they might be chasing this ol’ boar right into her wheelhouse.

But when the piggy comes flying through the brush and she seems to miss both shots, she’s left with no choice but to go to town the hog with the gun itself… baseball bat style.

She beats on the attacking boar with her gun until it runs off, screaming the entire time.

A frightening scenario no doubt, my only wish is that we had a translator so I knew what she was saying.

A number of Italians, a Sicilian, and even a fellow Sardinian chimed in with comments about how they had no idea what the hell she was saying (hilarious), but sounded like she was calling for her fellow hunters to come help.

What a scene….

Texas Man Captures 42 Wild Hogs At One Time

Feral hogs are a huge problem around the country, but especially in Texas.

So much so, that in Texas you can literally book a helicopter seat to go hunt these things from the air… just mowing them down from the skies with a fully-automatic machine gun.

It’s pretty wild…

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture:

“Feral hogs cause more than $1.5 billion in damages to property, agricultural interests (crops and livestock), native wildlife and ecosystems as well as cultural and historic resources.”

There’s somewhere between 2 million and 4 million wild hogs in the state of Texas (6 million estimated in the entire country). And because they have no breeding season, they reproduce at an astronomical rate. They can begin to breed around 5-6 months old, the gestation period is less than 4 months, and they can have anywhere from 2-12 piglets per litter.

Just do some quick math and you realize that it’s possible for a pig to have a few dozen piglets each year, who can begin to breed themselves before the year is over. It’s nuts.

And it’s not just your garden, your field, and the environment, these things will mess you up too.

A wild hog can harm you, harm your dog, your young kids, your livestock… they just damage whatever they come across.

So what do you do when you don’t have the time or money to hunt them the old fashioned way, or even the new fashioned way via helicopter? You set up a trap like the one you’re about to see below.

I mean, capturing 42 hogs all at once… pretty damn efficient.

Just wait until those gates drop…

Ted Nugent Says Only Idiots Have A Problem With Helicopter Hog Hunting

You can always count on Uncle Teddy to tell it like it is.

Rock icon Ted Nugent stopped by the Joe Rogan Experience podcast earlier this week, and amid a number of different topics, including Ted’s legendary rock and roll career, to marijuana use, and more, they got to talking about hunting… one thing both Ted and Joe are very passionate about.

And now that Joe lives in Austin, Texas, they got on the topic of hog hunting, but more specifically, hog hunting from a helicopter.

Seriously, it feels like something a billionaire would do for fun, simply because he’s so rich he doesn’t know what to do with himself.

But the reality is that wild hogs cause a MASSIVE problem in states like Texas, destroying farmland, rooting up the soil, polluting water systems, damage to wooded areas, preying on other animals… they’re an invasive pain in the ass and there is A LOT of them.

However, a lot of people seem to have opinion about helicopter hunting, calling it inhumane, cruel, lacking in “sport,” etc…

But after Rogan expressed his thoughts on killing hogs, saying that it’s actually good for the environment because honestly, these hogs don’t do anything except for being a pain in the ass, Nugent hilariously breaks it all down:

“If you have a problem with killing pigs from a helicopter, you’re an idiot.

And let me help fix you, because we’re all idiots at some point in life because we don’t know nothin’, or it’s ignorance, I’ve been ignorant. I’m currently ignorant on how to weld, I need to learn that, but I admit my ignorance so I don’t fuck up a weld.

When we kill pigs from a helicopter, it benefits the environment, because they destroy the environment. They erode everything and it causes devastation to waterways, and just every habitat… so we’re saving the environment, so shut up.

We’re saving agriculture because they destroy tens of millions of dollars in agriculture every year… just in Texas.”

He then talks about how he’s the one who helped legalize killing pigs from a helicopter in the state of Texas, calling up Governor Perry at the time, and Attorney General (current Governor) Greg Abbott, to get the law changed.

Not to mention, Ted picks up the meat from all the hogs, processes it, and they donate it to homeless shelters and soup kitchens. And on top of all of that, the legalization of hog hunting from a helicopter also brings in tourism dollars from people who want to try it.

We’re talking money for hotels, restaurants, outfitters, ammo, sporting goods, beer and more.

As Ted put it, it’s a “win-win-win-win-win-win for everybody.”
